    Hey there,

    Does anyone know if I keep my magnetic cover from the iPad 2 (apple's OEM ones), will it work on the ipad 3?

    Thanks
    Also searched for this info before starting thread!

    Yes will still work, its only the thickness of it thats changed and only by 0.6mm
    So the front will be the same and hence the smart covers will do the same job :)

    Yes, that's a better link. Combine that with a Marware micro shell for the back and you'll have decent front and back protection!
